We now understand while all the tiaras, necklaces, etc. are loans form the Queen (the crown) and not gifts to Camilla, Sophie, et al.

It is not because of any purported tax calculation, but essentially to keep the royal collection intact across generations.

Perhaps not. But this is a jewellery thread and many, many past royals have been rembered for their style as well as their substance.

I'm sorry, but what does this mean? She has to prove she deserves them? In what way? She's the wife of the grandson of the Queen and will one day be Queen Consort herself. What else does she have to do to "deserve" to wear jewelry?

Queen Alexandra and queen Mary divided their jewels between children.

Yes, and look how many important, historical pieces have left the family because of it.

I suspect it will be at a Canada related event, or when she goes back to Canada.

The Queen's Diamond Jubilee: the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in Malaysia - Telegraph

Just querying whether any of you think that Catherine is wearing her wedding earrings in the picture above from Malaysia. This was the day that the story about the topless pictures had broken.

Catherine hasn't worn her wedding earrings in public since wedding. Those are new earrings, first worn at that tour, you can view them in my album. I haven't been able to ID those so far.

How Kate Middleton's Ł48 fake pearls transformed a family's fortunes | Mail Online

Absoultely love this company and the jewellery they make - and Kate's earrings are beautiful. Sophie Wessex is a fan as well - she wears quite a few pieces from the collections

That is my regret, that they cut Sophie from this article. I am huge fan of hers, and she has exact same earrings...

I know and i think Sophie was wearing them before Kate (although the first time Kate wore them was actually at the B Palace wedding dress exhibtion with the Queen in July 2010). I guess Sophie juss doesnt sell stories - but it is lovely to see this small business doing so well as a result

Its not that Sophie doesn't sell stories but the whole gist of the article is about the 'Kate Effect' and the phenomenon of jewellery and articles of clothing selling out almost instantly after Kate is spotted wearing them.
Like I posted in another thread, there just isn't any equivalent 'Sophie Effect'

I agree BUT Daily Mail knew about Sophie, but dropped this part, they were going to mention me, anyway... It's the press that creates the Kate-effect, if they would cover Kate as poorely as Sophie, who would be aware of her?
I think they are using her the same as they did with Diana.

As for those earrings, I first saw them at Kate to the exhibit you mention, but it was 2011, not 2010. At Sophie in February/March 2012 during West Indies tour. But again, Sophie is so poorely covered that she might wore them sooner.

I still wish that Kate would wear some of her late mother-in-law's pearl earrings. They would look knock out.

I finally managed to do great close ups of Catherine UFO jewellery from Diamond Jubilee Lunch that was back in April 2012.
Her brooch is in fact oak leaf with 3 acorns made of pearls. I would say it is bespoke piece symbolizing her coat of arms, 3 pearls (Kate, Pippa, James??), not sure. But I'm sure it was made for her.

She wore them only twice in 2010 and then on 2012.

If I remember right, around the period of the wedding when the Middleton coat of arms came to be know, it was stated that the acorns indeed stand for the Middleton's three children. I would wager its a bespoke piece too as it so closely resembles the Middleton's coat of arms.
